Tine Altitude of Virginia^-Bemuty sud
When Virginia adopted the conserva?
tive role and thereby overoame extreme
radicalism, we regarded her as stooping
to conquer, and fonnd no occasion to
unite in the oritioism whioh some jour?
nals visited upon her. She has gone
Tory far to seoure admission into the
Union. She bas complied with all the
exacting demands made npon her. She
has gono before the President in tho at?
titude of an humble suppliant, and craved
the continuance of his kind protection.
We thought this was enough. To bow
her lofty head before Congressional and
Executive power*-this was, we hoped,
to fill the cup of her humiliation. But
we were mistaken. Another and a greater
humiliation was in reserve for the "Old
Dominion"-"the mother of States and
statesmen." This was to "bend the
pregnant hinges of the knee" before B.
F. Butler, the Chairman of the Recon?
struction Committee of tho House of
Representatives. The Bichmond Dis?
patch contains a long and detailed ac?
count of the visit of a committee of the
Virginia Legislature to the President and
then to General Butlor. This committee
informed General Butler of the faithful
manner in which the people of Virginia
had complied with tho demands of Con?
gress, and hoped that General Butlei
would be satisfied, aud that Virginiu
O, glorious consummation!-would bc
forthwith admitted. But Gcueral B.
was suspicious. Georgia had played him
a trick. Tennessee had done tho same.
Ho was uot to bo fooled again. He must
havo a more distinct pledge. Promise,
said he to the Committee, upon youi
sacred honor, as Virgiuiagentlemen; dc
clare before high Heaven, that yon won'l
play ns a trick, and wo will let you in,
Otherwise, wo will abut the golden dooi
of tho Union right in your face. Th<
Committee retired, complied with thc
demands of General Butler, and wen
assured that their State would bo ad
milted. Grant told the Committee, ii
effect, that ho hoped Virginia would be
have herself well in the future. Butlei
demanded pledges for her good behavior
We do not know how tho people of Vir
ginia will look upon the course of this
Committee. But did such a Committee
speak for South Carolina as this Com
m?tico did for Virginia, we would de
nounce their action, aud hang our beac
in very shame. When we read this in
torview between the Virginia Cominittc<
and Butler, we thought of Virginia'i
grand history and of Butler's ingloriom
record. It was Beauty and the Beast

A friend of the Association writes
This Association, now under process
of formation, ia one of the most inte?
resting features of our city. It has for
its object tho improvement of the spi?
ritual, social, moral and intellectual con?
dition of the yoong men of this city and
ita vicinity. Its reading room, whioh is
to contain not only the religious tracts
and periodicals of the day, but also, the
best scientific and professional journals,
will offer to all a pleasant and profitable
resort. At its regular meetings, which
aro to consist of a short devotional exer?
cise, reading an essay, romarks thereon,
reports of committees, Sec., our young
men will be brought together; goo 1 in?
fluences thrown around them, and, enno?
bling aspirations awakened and cherish?
ed. Moreover, it is au organization do
signed to extend the hand of kindness to
the stranger as'he enters our cities. To
put a young man in a position to help
himself, by securiog for him a placo of
honest industry, we consider the truest
act of friendship. Many young mon, in
coming to our city, have not the means
to command a place where they are en?
tirely comfortable, and for want of the
comforts that are denied them, they are
driven to haunts of dissipation, and stop
by step, from one vice to another, until
they are almost beyond reach of recla?
mation. Such young men are a special
object with the Association. It seeks
thom out, introduces them to its privi?
leges and throws around them its influ?
ence. Who can place a limit to the
amount of good that maybe accomplish?
ed by such an organization properly
conducted? We are glad to learu of the
complete formation of one among us,

THE DIFFICULTY, IN ETXIRFIEXD.-It
appears that tho statement, published

relative to a difficulty in Edgcfield, on

who have arrived in Columbia from the

Tn PROPOSED EXTENSION OP THE
Ozrx Lrarre.-We laid before oar read
era ia yesterday's isebe, ? b*U intro
duoqd ic the legislature. , by one of
tba members from this Cono ty-S.
B. Thompson-?od reported favorably
upon by the Committee on Incorpora?
tions. It is entitled a "Bill to alter and
amend the Charter and extend the limits
of the City of Colombia." By this bill,
it is first proposed to extend the limits
of the oity of Colombia about two squares
to the North and East. That this will
be of any advantage either to tho city or
the inhabitants of the section proposed
to be added, few interested in its welfaro
wonld say. It must bo remembered that
in making such additions, it is not solely
increasing the revenues of the citj-, by
increased area subject to municipal taxa?
tion, but also, the expenses of tho city
must be largely increased, to do ita duty
fairly to its proposed new inhabitants.
It is simply putting an additional burden
on a city, which bas found it difficult
to sustain thc present oxpeuso of ita
government and its credit; and that,
too, nndor tho guise of a benefit. We
believe that it was an old rule with the
Legislature, and which probably existe
now, that three mouthy' notico should
be given of nil amendments, so entitled,
of this kind. Yet, in this case, tho first
notice that tho citizons and tax-poyert
hnvo bad, is the bill that wo have pub?
lished. But when we rend further in thc
bill, we easily perceive wbnt is tho real
end proposed. Under the law of thit
present Legislature, (see Statutes ol
18G8, extra session, page-,) the prc
sent Mayor and Aldermen wcro elected
for tho balance of tho unexpired terni,
and ono full teem thereafter. They have
been elected (thc fairness of which electior
is undisputed) a little more than a year,
and their term of office will not expire
for about two years. And yet this bill,
in fuco of tho law of this same Legisla
turo and in plain violation of the vestec
rights-vested nnder their own laws-ol
the present Council, propose a new dec
tion next February; and wo cnn fairlj
presume, if the result of that election
bc not satisfactory to tho movers in thu
matter, nil that they will hnvo to do ane
will do, is to order, then, another elec
tion. This is "camping outside of tin
State Constitution," with a vengeance
We hope that tho Legislature will no
throw, by this act of special and rincon
stilutionul legislation, such a fire-braue
to the peace, order and common sense o
justice of tho citizens of Columbia
amongst us. Will tho Legislature wisl
to prove to us, that not only aro wo liv
iug under laws, in the making of whicl
wo have bad but little ngcucy, but tba
we are not living under any law at all
Will they, by this act, plainly sn}' to th
citizens of this city and the State, thu
they find it necessary and expedient t
do away with their own laws and th
rights created by them, and full back o
the old rule
"Let those take who have the power,
And lot those keep who can?"
Such a precedent established, might, i
the course of time, provo a two-edge
weapon, and cut in a way not desired b
those who aro pressing it; unless, indeec
they propose to set aside all right an
law, and "make bay whilst the su
shines," ami "after them, the deluge."
Tuc STATE COXSTAIJULAKY.-Wo bi
lieve it is Beverly Nash, the colored Si
uator from Richland, who introduce
the bill to "protect from arrest tho o
ficers of the State Police, for any allege
offence committed by them in tho di
charge of their duties." Tho followin
are Sections 1 and 2 of this outraged
bill, upon which comments are unie
"SECTION 1. That any member of tl
'Stato Police' shall bo free from nrrei
upon any warrant or process that ms
bo issued against him, upon any con
plaint or iuformation for any allege

CIRCUIT COURT.-The Court resumed
the consideration of the case of Geo. F.
Cording va. Wm. Warne. McCrady &
Son, and Pope & Haskell for plaintiff;
and Campbell Sc Seabrook for defendants.
The testimony and argument had been
heard on yesterday. Tho Judge oharged
tho jury, that, if the jury were satisfied
that the notes on which sait was brought
were given for value received, or as ac?
commodation paper, then the plaintiff,
who waa eudorser, had a right to recover,
though the notes were past duo when he
received them, and though he was aware
of the faots at timo of parchase, that
the notes wero accommodation paper.
The jury retired, and after being ont
about an hour, they requested leave to
return into Court, os they could not
agrco. Upon their return into Court,
the Judge, in a summary way, re-stated
the fnots and the law, and added to what
he had said in his first charge, that, as
tho foot was admitted by the defendant,
that thc notes wore given as accommoda?
tion paper, the defendant was in law
liable, if even the jury should come to
the conclusion that the notes were not
for valuablu consideration, as had been
sworn to by the plaintiff and a disinte?
rested aud unimpeached witness. He
said to tho jury the responsibility was
with him, and if his opinion was errone?
ous, no injury could result to the de?
fendant, as on a writ of error, his opin?
ion could be set aside by the Supreme
Court. Tho bailiffs were then duly
sworn to take charge of tho jury, when
the jury nguiu retired to their room at 5
In the matter of the examination of
applicants to practice in this Court, it is
ordered that upon petition filed, all ap
I plicants be examined on Tnesday morn?

BEYOND A DOUBT.-More diseases are
tho result of a derangement of the Liver
than from any other cause. When that
organ is diseased, every part of the sys?
tem sympathises with it, aud geueral
prostration and decline is tho result. The
best, safest and speediest remedy for
Liver Complaint, and all the diseases
that follow, is TUTT'S VEGETABLE LIVER
PILLS, they uro peculiarly udapted to the
climate of tho South. They are sold by
Druggists everywhere. Dil 6
BLOOD! BLOOD!! BLOOD!!!-Out; out,
I say, this canker spot; this self-con
demuing fruit of a diseased body; viti?
ated system; impaired health; disordered
liver: foul stomach, aud other ills which
flow from this self-same cause. Bad
blood! Bad blood! the primal canse of
all disease. HEINITSH'S QUEEN'S DE?
LIGHT. This elegant preparation is the
only true remedy yet discovered for re?
moving every disease and symptoms of
disease, which may be traced to bad
blood. It is truly a sovereign remedy,
and thousands will attest the truth. D10
lu Germany, they treat a patient with
liver disease regularly, as though he was
violently ill, for six months, he is then
turned over to the cook with a digestion
that is perfect. In this country, how
many suffer from year to year, taking a
little blue pill to poison the system now
and then, but going on puying no atten?
tion to tho disease, until they don't know
what it is to bo well, becoming a burden
to themselves and a trouble to all around
them. Take SIMMONS' LIVER REGULATOR
regularly, enjoy health yourself and give
grutificution to those about you. Dil J3
Extract from a private letter from Hawaii,
? ? ? ? Although the eruption
is not so violent now, tho volcano is a
fearful sight to behold. The rivers of
lava still flow, and the smoke from the
crater ascends in awful majesty. During
this volcanic upheaval it has been vary
sickly here. A peculiar sort of low ma?
larious fever, which has grown ont of the
foul, condensed vapors of tho volcano,
has prevailed to an alarming extent, and
at one time it was feared it would depo?
pulate the island. But fortunately, a sea
captain, (calling hore for supplies,) dis?
tributed PLANTATION BITTERS to "tho
suffering, and quick and thorough cures
were the result. Tbe news spread like
wild-fire. Messrs. Ching-Takin St Co.,
Commission Merchants, had these Bit?
ters for sale. In a short time their office
was besieged and their supply exhausted.
A steamer was despatched to San Fran?
cisco by order of the Hospital Depart?
ment, and a new and enormoua supply
obtained as soon os possible. From that
moment tho sconrge was stayed. Not
another fatal caso occurred, and the epi?
demic bas now entirely disappeared. *
* * Is this wonderful remedy koowa
in your city? I hope so, for it is a sure
cure for ull fevers and miasmatio sick?
ness. You may tell your frieuds so for
me. * * * * * H. M. C.
